Just remember, no SCOTUS ruling can prevent legislation from being passed.
True, but if the SCOTUS threw it out as they did part of the Brady Bill then it would be the same in effect. Also, I wonder if the fear of it being tossed might deter all but the most liberal from passing it?

I think you are right.
Thanks for this. I admit I wasn't aware of it. I would still like to see how the courts would handle a similar issue to at least get an idea of how the courts expand and or limit Heller in future rulings.

And I agree with Glenn about the mob mentality in Washington. A rash of shooting could very well put enough pressure on members of congress that they feel such a ban would be necessary no matter the failure of prior attempts with similiar legislation.

Hopefully Heller has set the legal groundwork for the courts to strike down such bans.
